Grace Edwards hoped that recipients of her Scholarship would repay the Fund when they were established in their professions and able to do so. The Scholarship is gift money, not a loan, and repayment is voluntary. Grace Edwards hoped that the Fund would grow from repayments, enabling even more future students to receive the benefit of the Scholarship. Donations to the Fund complete the circle of giving. We also have donors who are not past recipients of the Scholarship but who wish to support students working hard to achieve their educational goals. Our students face many financial challenges, high loans, limited aid pacakges, strained family finances. The Edwards Scholarship Fund has helped meed those challenges since 1939.
The Edwards Scholarship Fund is an eligible charity under Section 501 (c) (3) of the IRS tax code. Donations are tax deductible and are acknowledged in writing by the Fund. We accept donations made by payroll deduction and matching funds from the donor's place of employment. All donations are welcome and deeply appreciated.
Most donations are made in the form of a check. We cannot accept cash or on-line credit card payments. Donations made through an employer's payroll deduction plan can be deposted electorically. Our contact information is:
